Oh yeah, they are brill! You really gotta love those 50's bots.... I'd love to have a whole force of them if I could!!
Well done with the trims and skull fists can we get a better look, view,different angle of those fists by the way?

Cheers, Mithril

 

++EDIT++ swear filter did crazy stuff to my words ?????... what the?...

 

Thanks Mithril. I did remember to take a picture of the fists for you. One is a more traditional sneering skull, and the other is more 'ad mech' looking. I could do a better job next time, I admit I wanted to get them on the table pretty bad....

I am away on training this week and won't have time for the batrep of the game I just played... plus did an Ultramarine batrep so just lack of time sorry. But I did have some time to work on my first Dragoon and I was very disappointed to see the bigger oval bases in the Sector Imperialis base box is not big enough for Dragoon!

 

I'm not sure what to do...

So as you can see the Dragoon base is under the Imperialis base and there's a big difference. I have no idea what this base is for (it's bigger than a bike base). 

 

Anyway... plugging along.

Thanks for the extra effort on the pics prot, thumbsup.gif

hey why don't you just glue the 2 bases together and extend the top one with debris/rubble/martian earth on the sides of the lower one?... (if you have the inclination that is)

 

cheers, Mithril

Thanks guys. I actually came up with a similar solution. I hope to have some time so I can finish up a squad and see how it looks.

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

 

Reasons to use the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think the Librarian Dreadnought needs Furious Charge AND It Will Not Die to beat down a Chaos-worshiping punk and his Defiler, while a Stormraven needs a Vanquisher cannon to beat down this punk's Heldrake.

Welp, I guess I'll snap my brushes in half. :P Nice work on the intricate base detail and the lighting effects in particular. Is the hood detail freehand or a decal ?

Thanks a ton guys. I really appreciate that someone likes this stuff (Emperor knows my wife doesn't!)

 

Yes the hood is freehand. This guy was so difficult, he reminded me of painting Guiliman. I had to do it pieces and was often frustrated by some of the pieces. Even the lighting was honestly redone multiple times in some parts because I didn't like it at times. 

 

Thanks for the generous comments.

Truth be told, there's so much awesome on that model. From the color palette to the lightning effects.

 

My favorite thing though is that skuttling little servitor bug at his feet. Awesome.

I can certainly agree with the sentiment. Working with Cawl is a slightly scary experience since there are so many spindly bits that could snap. I'm reaching the stage where I can probably fix most of the mechadendrites and limbs in place and paint the last few details with my Cawl but I'm still worried about breaking pieces of getting paint in the wrong places. That you built him without snapping any parts is a victory, finishing with a great paintjob is a added bonus.

Agreed! Guilliman is tough, but Cawl is like painting a house of cards. 

 

I had him in about 6 or 7 pieces. It was difficult to get him together after painting some of the arms, and making it look natural on the base (he wasn't on the base when I painted him either.)

I watched the Warhammer TV guide and while Duncan was suggesting about 3 sub-assemblies I was practically shouting "How are you doing that?!" at the screen. Here's hoping he does you proud on the tabletop over time. :)

Very well done! At lot of interesting techniques at display, and you tied together the diverse, strong and different colors in a way that seems natural and adds to the model rather than distract from it. Truly impressive!

Man....I love these. I love pretty much everything that I see you paint, but you may have just sold me on AdMech as my project.

I know, right? You can only see so many other people working with AdMech line, and getting such great results before you can't ignore the itch. They're challenging, with so many fiddly bits, but so worth the effort.

Building an AdMech army is very rewarding IMO because the models are just so impressive and they work in a vast variety of schemes.  I think they look good even for potato painting technique like mine, but in the hands of truly talented folks we get results like this :D

Losing 'hope' after 10k years just because of a big warp storm? Doesn't sound like my Blood Angels.

Never had hope to begin with; they had duty, and that was enough.
